Ok, I have a property with a gas supply that I would like to remove. The property is empty and is to undergo renovation next year and as part of this I want to go fully electric (I appreciate this is more expensive to run)
As it happens last month, the operator (Northern Gas) upgraded the mains pipe works in my area and supply pipe to my gas meter was changed (which is on an external wall). However as I was not around then the supply remains disconnected. I phoned them and they need to come out to reconnect and check the internal appliances.
So can I just get the meter removed (via Bulb) and then remove the internal pipework/appliances and just leave it at that or do I have to legally get the supply capped (which is expensive).
Also if the meter is removed then will internal access be required to the property on the day and if it is, why?
Thanks for any answers to this.
